Hey mechanics out there
I recently did a pretty bumpy race where after I went they the bumpy section, my disc brake levers got super soft to the point where the levers would depress all the way to the handlebars without really biting the rotors.
Obviously I have air in the system, but my brake had been working great for the last couple of months before.
Any tips here on how to make sure that doesn’t happen again? I’ve re bled the brakes and they are back to normal, but am concerned obvi on it happening in another race.
The rear was worse than the front brake, but figured the longer hose allowed for more air to get in. Not sure why the bumps would cause this.
